Just ran across a strange problem.
One user could not be contacted by other users even though their presence was good.
This user could initiate conversations, and then things worked normally.
logging revealed the following:

Resolution: removed a bogus entry in AD user object.

There was a text entry there rather than numeric.
Question: What is the mechanics of the UR stuffing this bogus value into somewhere that caused this failure? I doubt I will ever know.
